The historian Crane Brinton in his book "Anatomy of a Revolution" laid out the common route to revolution.


The preconditions for successful revolution, Brinton argued, are:



  • discontent that affects nearly all social classes,

  • widespread feelings of entrapment and despair,

  • unfulfilled expectations,

  • a unified solidarity in opposition to a tiny power elite,

  • a refusal by scholars and thinkers to continue to defend the actions of the ruling class,

  • an inability of government to respond to the basic needs of citizens,

  • a steady loss of will within the power elite itself and defections from the inner circle,

  • a crippling isolation that leaves the power elite without any allies or outside support and,

  • finally, a financial crisis.


  • THE TIME IS NOW!
